More Updates to Facebook
More Facebook updates? I know, it’s kind of like the way they keep adding things to the simplest products, like diapers and toothbrushes. How much more can there really be? But, through my series on home based businesses, I know it’s working for ya, so we will continue to keep you updated on all the latest updates to Facebook that you could put to good use to make that extra dollar.
This week, the big news over at Facebook is that you can now include images in the comments. While this could get wildly annoying when tons of images are clogging your feed, you can see the potential. Someone asks for a product recommendation, or wants to share their favorite dishwasher and sends an image along so that the poster gets the exact one they are looking for… could be useful. I am sure our marketing team has lots of ideas for ways to use this new little tool.
Facebook is also launching new Graph Tags to make it easier for people to follow their favorite writers and publishers. The Facebook Blog announced the updates on Wednesday, along with instructions for publishers and the documentation process needed to ensure that the proper parties get credit for the work being promoted.
